I went to pick up my babies with Lilian last evening. Going doll shopping alone is fun. Going with a fellow dolly friend is double the fun. While I had picked up my pre order Prima Dollys, she had decided to buy Hello Winter on the whim.
Lilian reckons I love blondes. While I don’t think it is necessarily true, it is true that I absolutely adore Saffy. She’s no longer Saffy by the way. Her new name’s Marilyn (no prizes on where the inspiration came from) but just call her M. Marilyn is too fussy for her. She’s a not a fussy, oh let’s do the airkissing/how have you been sweetheart kinda chick. She likes to get straight to the point.
I simply lurve her hair. It has the same fluffy texture as Angelica Eve. I suspect they may have ordered the same hair for both girls (more economical, lol) but it’s fantastic. I am not complaining. I like the soft marshmallow, fluffy texture of it. I know heaps of people are not big fans of the frizz after a while, but I do love big curly hair. There’s a certain old skool glamor to it.Her make up is almost perfect too. I say its almost perfect because while I love the bronze on her cheeks and soft brown on her lips, I simply cannot deal with the blue eyeshadow. I have never liked blue eyeshadow ever since the SQ girls (Singapore Airline air stewardess) scared me with their bright blue eyeshadow and garish red lips with matching nails. So her blue eye shadow will have to go for sure.
She’s quite perfect otherwise. Here’s M, dipping her feet in my wash basin after her jet lag. She knows its no swimming pool. but like I have said, she’s not very fussy at all. It’s all good with her as long as it serves the same purpose.
Pardon my amateurish attempt at making comic strips but this is my obsession of the moment. Lol. Yes I know. I have the attention span of a 3 year old child.
Juliet was becoming totally unbearable and so this was what happened when she tried to boast again…..
I have been totally shameless in letting as many people know that my little snobbish French Blythe, Juliet made it into Bazar with me when I took her along to the Marc Jacobs Daisy event.All I wanted to do when I brought her there was to be able to take pretty pics of her in day time at Demsey. I would have never thought that the photographer would be intrigued enough by us playing with the doll to want to take a picture of us. Well to take a picture of 6 grown up women playing with a doll is one thing and quite another thing to publish it….But Juliet is totally loving it. The other girls are finding her unbearable. Even my sweet asian girl and the easy going Silky. I think there is going to be a showdown soon…
I just thought that I would give a short, quick tutorial on how to give your dollies sparkly eye make up. I have been asked this question by a couple of people after they saw Sasha with her her brand new sparkly eye make up.
One of the reasons why I like AE was the lack of make up on her face. She had looked so quiet and understated with just her cheek and lip colors. However, I cannot connect with her like my other dollies. I do not feel her personality at all. Perhaps it’s due to the fact that she was a present. Even though I had badly wanted her, I simply cannot connect.She has morphed to be a Fairy Godmother like presence amongst my dolls over time. It probably has to do with the fact that she was given to me as a present to cheer me up. So somehow it seems like she has taken on the same role to my other dolls. Since she’s the Fairy God mother, she has to look like one.
My idea of an angel or fairy god mother is one with ethereal beauty. She needs to look like she is radiating from within and it was with this in mind that prompted me to give her sparkly eye dust. Here’show she looks now.
To achieve this, you need eye dust from any make up store and gloss varnish. I sprinkled a first layer of eye dust onto her eyelids and sealed it with varnish. Before the varnish dries, I sprinkle another layer on so that it will adhere onto the varnish. I wait for a little while before sealing that layer of eye dust with yet another layer of varnish. Depending on the intensity you would like to achieve, keep repeating the steps above and sealing the final layer with the gloss varnish.Do take note to keep checking the smoothness of the close eye function while you layer on. (Make sure the gloss is dry when you do this because you do not want to ruin her make up!) If you pile on the eye dust and varnish too thickly, it does get into the way of the close eye function and you will find that the eyes will not close as smoothly.
I hope this post will be helpful to those who wants to achieve the same effect for their dolls. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
